The Classics Club meme for May is:
Tell us about the classic book(s) you’re reading this month. You can post about what you’re looking forward to reading in May, or post thoughts-in-progress on your current read(s).
I just finished Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and look forward to blogging about it shortly. It's been on my reading list for years, and I have mixed feelings. I expected to unconditionally love it, but I had a few issues. It was still a great read and a timeless classic.
I am almost done listening to Captains Courageous by Rudyard Kipling. Just two chapters left, and it is terrific. Sort of a mini version of Moby Dick--I feel like I have been well-schooled in fishing vessels at the turn of the last century. I'm even inspired to maybe add a question or two about it to the Goodreads' Never-Ending-Book-Quiz, my personal favorite procrastinator's tool.
I'm about to start Never Let Me Go, by Kazuo Ishiguao. I had meant to read his Remains of the Day first, but I joined a read-along this month and so changed the reading order.
